  • Following the Norman Conquest in 1066, Southampton became the major port of transit between the then capital of England, Winchester, and Normandy. Southampton Castle was built in the 12th century.

    By the 13th century Southampton had become a leading port, specifically associated with the import of French wine in exchange for English cloth and wool. However in 1338 the French ships Genoese and Monegasque refused to use Southampton. Edward III ordered walls to be built around the town in 1339, half of which remain today along with 13 towers and 6 gates. In the 1920's and also in 1938 the medieval walls were partially demolished to aid with increasing traffic congestion, although large sections of the walls still exist today.

    The Titanic, the Spitfire and a variety of modern day cruise ships are affiliated with Southampton. RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton in 1912. The flying boats of Imperial Airways set up base in Southampton in 1938. The port continued to develop and Southampton Container Terminals dates back to 1968, adding to the busy cruise ship industry based at the port. At present Southampton remains home to luxury cruise ships, as well as being the largest freight port on the Channel coast and fourth largest UK port by tonnage, with several container terminals.

    R J Mitchell, the designer of the spitfire lived and developed the plane in Southampton; he based the design around the Schneider trophy winning seaplanes of the 1920's/30's.

    As a result of a Royal Charter in 1952, the University College at Highfield was upgraded to the University of Southampton. There are now around 40,000 students in total who attend either the University of Southampton or Southampton and Solent University. In July 2007, the Daily Echo quoted a survey which described Southampton as one of the best places to live in the UK for single people aged 18 to 30.

    Opened in 2000, the West Quay is Southampton’s main retail centre and is also one of the biggest in England. Southampton was ranked 13th best shopping centre in 2007. The city’s first skyscrapers along the waterfront are one of many major development ideas proposed for Southampton. There are also plans for a 15-storey hotel at the Ocean Village marina, and a 21-storey hotel on the north eastern area of the city centre, as part of a £100m development.

    The city is home to the longest surviving stretch of medieval walls in England, as well as a number of museums such as Tudor House Museum, Southampton Maritime Museum, God's House Tower, the Medieval Merchant's House and Solent Sky. A Titanic Memorial Museum is planned. Having gained half a million pounds from the National Lottery and interest from numerous private investors, the £28 million project opened in 2012 - the 100th anniversary year of the disastrous maiden voyage.

    The annual Southampton Boat Show is held in September each year, with over 600 exhibitors present. It runs for just over a week at Mayflower Park on the city's waterfront, where it has been held since 1968. The Boat Show itself is the climax of Sea City, a festival that celebrates Southampton's ties with the sea and it takes place from April through to September each year.

    The largest theatre in the city is the 2,300 capacity Mayflower Theatre, which has hosted West End shows such as Les Miserables, The Rocky Horror Show and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, as well as frequent visits from Welsh National Opera and English National Ballet.

    The City Art Gallery, the Millais Gallery and the Art House are among some of the contemporary art galleries located around Southampton. In August 2009, work commenced on a significant scheme to create an Arts Quarter in the City Centre, on land adjacent to the Guildhall.

    Craig David, Coldplay drummer Will Champion, former Holloway’s singer Rob Skipper and alternative rock bands Band of Skulls, The Delays and Thomas Tantrum as well as 1980s pop star Howard Jones were all born in Southampton.

    Southampton is home to Southampton Football Club -"The Saints"-who play in the Football League Premiership at St Mary's Stadium. 1976 saw them defeat Manchester United in a shock win to lift the FA Cup. One of the biggest and most respected clubs in Hampshire, Southampton Hockey Club was founded in 1938. Southampton’s various marinas supply yachting and a number of other water sport activities. Southampton's Ocean Village marina was the base of the Whitbread Round the World yacht race from 1977 to 2001. Dating back to 1299, Southampton Old Bowling Green is the world's oldest green.

    Southampton has been dubbed the Green City, due to its large number of green spaces and parks. Southampton Common is the largest with 148 hectares which can be used for summer festivals, fairs and circuses.
